About the Show

Can 11 year-olds take on plastic pollution? Fifth graders from Brooklyn lead a challenge against the pervasive use of plastics, asking probing questions about the local and global impacts on people, wildlife, and water systems. Using their own data to testify and rally City Hall, the young activists take action in their own cafeteria to eliminate all single-use plastic.

Themes

  • The question of how products impact the environment is quite complicated. Who in your life would be interested in exploring this topic with you?
  • The students in this film learn a lot about how plastic impacts the environment, and then take concrete steps to do something about it. If these 5th graders can do that, what might you and your peers want to do?

Children should be 9 years of age or older to view this film. 

This opportunity is offered courtesy of our Project Success theater partner, the MSP International Film Festival.
